All Quotes from Half-Life 2

So, wake up, Mr. Freeman. Wake up and smell the ashes.

Time, Dr. Freeman? Is it really that time again? It seems as if you only just arrived. You've done a great deal in a small time span. You've done so well, in fact, that I've received some interesting offers for your services.
Ordinarily, I wouldn't contemplate them... but these are extraordinary times.
Rather than offer you the illusion of free choice, I will take the liberty of choosing for you... if and when your time comes round again. I do apologize for what must seem to you an arbitrary imposition, Dr. Freeman. I trust it will all make sense to you in the course of... well... I'm really not at liberty to say. In the meantime... this is where I get off.
Never fear, Gordon, she's de-beaked and completely harmless. The worst she might do is attempt to couple with your head. Fruitlessly!
Welcome. Welcome, to City 17. You have chosen, or been chosen, to relocate to one of our finest remaining urban centers. I thought so much of City 17, that I elected to establish my administration, here, in the citadel, so thoughtfully provided by our benefactors. I am proud to call City 17 my home. And so, whether you are here to stay, or passing through to parts unknown, welcome, to City 17. It's safer here.
Dr. Eli Vance: "A-hem! Alyx, why don't you take Gordon along and give him some practice with the Gravity Gun?"
Alyx Vance: "Sure. C'mon, Gordon. Let's go have some fun."
Dr. Judith Mossman: "The Zero Point Energy Field Manipulator is not a toy, Alyx."
Alyx Vance: "Ugh, let's get outta here."
Great job, Gordon! Throwing that switch and all, I can see your MIT education really pays for itself.

Dr. Isaac Kleiner: "We can't leave without Lamarr. She's around here somewhere..."
Alyx Vance: "Come on, Dr. Kleiner. We can find you another pet headcrab."
Dr. Isaac Kleiner: "No! There's only one Hedy!"
I'd like to take a moment to address you directly, Dr. Freeman. Yes. I'm talking to you, the so-called One Free Man. I have a question for you. How could you have thrown it all away? It staggers the mind. A man of science, with the ability to sway reactionary and fearful minds toward the truth, choosing instead to embark on a path of ignorance and decay. Make no mistake, Dr. Freeman. This is not a scientific revolution you have sparked... this is death and finality. You have plunged humanity into freefall. Even if you offered your surrender now, I cannot guarantee that our benefactors would accept it. At the moment, I fear they have begun to look upon even me with suspicion. So much for serving as humanity's representative. Help me win back their trust, Dr. Freeman. Surrender while you still can. Help ensure that humanity's trust in you is not misguided. Do what is right, Dr. Freeman. Serve mankind.
Dr. Freeman, you really shouldn't be out there. At the moment of synapse, as I teleport, this chamber will be bathed in deadly particles that have yet to be named by human science.
